Twenty-seven Superdraws have been scheduled since EuroMillions began, with the first one taking place in February 2007. The jackpot in that draw was worth £66 million, almost half what the most recent Superdraw jackpot was valued at in sterling. Increases to the jackpots and changes in the exchange rate between euros and pounds mean that Superdraw jackpots are now worth more than ever to UK players.

EuroMillions Superdraw FAQs
Superdraws are the most exciting EuroMillions events in the calendar, and there's no better time to play than when the jackpot reaches record levels. If there's anything else you need to know about Superdraws you can find what you're looking for in these questions and answers.
How do Superdraws work?
In a Superdraw the EuroMillions jackpot is increased to a guaranteed amount, regardless of how much lower it was in the previous draw. The jackpot that is advertised ahead of each normal draw is an estimated amount, because it is based on expected ticket sales. For a Superdraw, however, the participating countries all agree to use some money from the EuroMillions Reserve Fund to guarantee a jackpot of a certain value.
So, for example, if a Superdraw with a guaranteed jackpot of £100 million is due to take place and the jackpot rolls over to £75 million ahead of it, another £25 million will be added to boost the top prize to the guaranteed nine-figure amount.
If the jackpot gets won in the draw before the Superdraw and resets to its £15 million starting value, a huge £85 million sum would be added to the pot to get it to the guaranteed £100 million.
Superdraws are just like standard draws in every other way. You still pick five numbers and two Lucky Stars and you still win the jackpot by matching all of them with the winning line. If a Superdraw jackpot does not get won on the night it rolls over and will continue to do so until it gets won or hits the jackpot cap.
How often do Superdraws take place?
EuroMillions Superdraws are not scheduled for any specific date. Instead, when enough money has built up in the EuroMillions Reserve Fund, the nine participating lotteries will agree to hold a Superdraw. The National Lottery has stated that it expects there to be three Superdraws a year, and the date of each one will be announced several weeks in advance.
How much does it cost to enter?
The cost of playing in a Superdraw is just the same as any other EuroMillions draw, so £2.50 per line for UK players.
How are Superdraws funded?
The money required to boost the jackpot up to a Superdraw value comes from the EuroMillions Reserve Fund. This fund is made up of 4.8 percent of the revenue from all EuroMillions tickets sold for the first six draws of a rollover cycle, and 21 percent of the revenue from each draw after that. When the Reserve Fund runs to an excess, the participating countries will determine when the next Superdraw will be held.
What happens if the EuroMillions jackpot rolls over to more than the Superdraw jackpot?
If the jackpot naturally rolls over to be worth more than the advertised Superdraw jackpot on the same draw date, the funds that would have been used to boost the jackpot to its guaranteed amount will be retained and used to fund an event in the future. The amount that the jackpot has naturally rolled over to will instead be the prize on offer.
There have only been two occasions in the course of EuroMillions history when this has happened: once on 6th June 2014 and then again five years later on 4th October 2019.
Do I still get a raffle code when I enter a Superdraw?
Apart from the size of the jackpot, Superdraws are just like any other draw, so you get entry to all the usual raffles and supplementary games. That means if you play in the UK you will have a chance to win a nine-figure jackpot in the Superdraw and a £1 million prize in the Millionaire Maker raffle on the same night.
